Some suggestions for you :

Algernon. Good heavens! Is marriage so demoralising as that? Lane. I believe it is a very pleasant state, sir. I have had very little experience of it myself up to the present. I have only been married once. That was in consequence of a misunderstanding between myself and a young person.

Rich bachelors should be heavily taxed. It is not fair that some men should be happier than others.

I am not in favour of this modern mania for turning bad people into good people at a moment's notice.

I am too fond of reading books to care to write them.

When Tommy wants to be romantic he talks to one just like a doctor.

And now, let us go out on the terrace where 'droops the milk-white peacock like a ghost,' while the evening star 'washes the dusk with silver.' At twilight nature becomes a wonderfully suggestive effect, and is not without loveliness, though perhaps its chief use is to illustrate quotations from the poets.

I can resist anything but temptation.

I quite admit that modern novels have many good points. All I insist on is that, as a class, they are quite unreadable.

I cannot choose one hundred best books because I have only written five.

The only artists I have ever known who are personally delightful are bad artists.

As a wicked man I am a complete failure. Why, there are lots of people who say I have never really done anything wrong in the whole course of my life. Of course they only say it behind my back.

Lord Henry, you are quite delightful and dreadfully demoralizing.

I'm too fond of reading books to care to write them.

I know not whether laws be right or whether laws be wrong.
